Hillsborough County Electrical Repairs
It’s extremely important to remember that any repairs on your electrical system need to be handled by a licensed and professionally trained electrician. Attempting to complete any electrical repairs on your own is extremely dangerous, and you run the very strong risk of injuring yourself or someone during the process. Even if you do make it through the repairs without injury, there’s still a very strong chance that you’ve made any number of tiny mistakes that can end up being disastrous.
In fact, the National Fire Protection Agency lists faulty electrical wiring as the number one cause of house fires in the United States.
Our professional electricians will always arrive on the job as quickly as possible after you request service. We’ll also complete the work as quickly as we can, but we’ll never let speed get in the way of a quality job.

About Hillsborough County
Savior Home Services is proud to serve the entire Hillsborough County area. Hillsborough County, which takes its name from Wills Hill, British Secretary of State to the Colonies from 1768-1772, was first mapped and explored by the Spanish in the early 16th century. Between 1559 and 1819, the area now called Florida was under the rule of four nations: Spain, France, Great Britain and the United States. The United States purchased Florida from Spain in 1821 for $5 million.
On Jan. 25, 1834, the U.S. Legislative Council for the Territory of Florida approved an act organizing Hillsborough as Florida’s 19th county. In 1845, Florida was granted statehood.
At that time, Hillsborough County was a sprawling area that included what is now Pinellas, Polk, Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte, DeSoto, Hardee and Highlands Counties, most of Glades County, and part of Lee County. Despite its size, Hillsborough’s population was only 836, not including soldiers or Native Americans.
When the first Commissioners met in 1846, the topics were taxes, transportation, a new courthouse and jail, and downtown development. The County tax raised $148.69 that year. Commissioners were paid $2 per day while in session.
In 1846, Commissioners approved plans for a new courthouse, since the original building, a small log cabin, was burned during the Second Seminole War. The project was turned over to Capt. James McKay in 1847, and he completed a two-story house, 20 feet by 45 feet, at a cost of $1,358. Commissioners later paid McKay an extra $10 for additional work.
In 1892, a red brick courthouse with a silver dome was built, occupying one square block in downtown Tampa. The building was designed by J.A. Wood, who also designed the Tampa Bay Hotel. Torn down in 1953, this distinctive courthouse is preserved in the County seal. The next courthouse was built in 1952, and is still used as an administrative building for the court system. The current main courthouse, the George E. Edgecomb Courthouse, opened in 2004, was built at the corner of Pierce Street and Twiggs Street. The current County government administration building, called County Center, opened in 1994. County Center was renamed the Frederick B. Karl County Center in 2000, in honor of the County Administrator who was instrumental in the purchase of the building.
